Law school grads struggling to find articling jobs

May 7, 2012

Canadian law school graduates are finding it more difficult than ever to secure an articling job after graduating. According to the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC), 12.1% of articling applicants were without placements as of March 31, up from 5.8% in March 2008. The current situation, which some have called an "articling crisis," has forced LSUC to consider reforms. The society plans to release its final report this fall and issue an interim report this month. Lawyers Weekly
